Tangram- The 5040 Poems of a World Peaced Together

Instructions: Arrange the lines of this poem in any order you find pleasing. To increase world peace and understanding, pass your version on to a friend and ask them to do the same :-)

On the seven board of cunning
You can arrange the pieces
With geographic diplomacy
To make different shapes
If your mind is agile
The continents move so
When the people are at peace

Hi Swan, Regards this and your latest post on your blog: Seems you've got it bad! Have you thought of coounting sheep, watching paint dry or perhaps a spot of knitting?? Anyway, feel free to rearrange the words (and letters too) if you so wish - its your life!

Here goes my arrangement:

So,can the cunning people
of diplomacy arrange
the geographic pieces,
make shapes on the board,
with the seven continents?
Your agile mind is different.
When are you to move on?
At peace.

On the Seven Board of Cunning

When the fragile mind
Makes different shapes
You can arrange the pieces
With cunning diplomacy
So the continents move
To make the peace

LOL Love it Ian. Your usual adroit fatfree approach. My mind is still fragile from the jam.

Swan, your translation exercise was worthwhile indeed. I might try running one of my poems through a french translator then from french back to English - just for the fun of it!

Hey Glenn, I love the whole concept and congratulate you on the new form. I did one but I couldn't help myself from moving the words around as well. I posted it over at poetisphere. Peacing Together the World - awesome!
